    i bought a langster comp...

    ..frame.
    for next to nothing i might add.
    i am wondering, if a 170 in the crank i want is not available would a 175 be too big? and will 165 be too small?

    sorry for noobing out. please do not kill me.

    or is this a good budget option if i have a sugino messenger chain ring to put on? would it even fit on these cranks?

    are you dead yet?

    if youre taking super tight angles, riding a velo, a short crank is a must. my exp, if youre riding on the street, 175 is fine.

    the cranks in the link should fit the chainring. since they come in 110 and 130, you'd want the 130 with the messenger chain ring.

    I have a langster comp and the stock Sugino 75 165 w/ mks sylvans does not strike... or should I say has yet to strike LOL. I ride a 49x16 on the 165's and it's a little tough up steep hills but when I gear to an 18t cog, its just fine. 165's are not too small for anything but 170/175's make it all easier LOL

    i love the comp but putting no name cranks on it is weaksauce. get kazane, they're colorful! or xd/rd messengers.

    ok after reading richpugh post i emailed off my request to switch my order to 165s. i always thought this bike came with 170s.

    now all i need is my wheelset and im done.
